Wonderful Hues of Happiness Suite Fun Fold

As we all do, I have a few people I like to "follow" on Instagram. One of those people is the amazing Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Jaimie Babarczy of New York. I really liked this card she created recently (she cased it from @karenksenzakovic), but I have improved it just a bit.

As I was looking at the card, she only put one layer of Basic White inside and I thought to myself, hmmm, writing a message inside that card is going to prove difficult because it will show if you aren't careful. (Not to mention you would have an interesting shaped message inside if you got long-winded!)

My improvement was to use a 4" x 10.5" Basic White piece scored at 5.25". Glue the folded piece inside with the fold at the top. That way you have a spot to write your greeting on the bottom layer inside, but you also have the top white layer that will create the desired effect with this fun fold design. 

You will start with a full sheet of Cardstock and score it both directions at 4-1/4" and 5-1/2". Use the photo above at the cutting diagram for the two angled folds.

Select the piece of Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper you like and cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece then slice it diagonally to match the photo above. One piece is glued to the left side flap. Then flip over the other piece to glue to the top flap, thus creating the two tone look.

Adhere your folded Basic White insert inside and fussy cut one flower to glue as decoration to the inner layer.

Finish it up using the photo above for reference for the hexagon tag.
